ptp: arm/arm64: Enable ptp_kvm for arm/arm64
Currently, there is no mechanism to keep time sync between guest and host in arm/arm64 virtualization environment. Time in guest will drift compared with host after boot up as they may both use third party time sources to correct their time respectively. The time deviation will be in order of milliseconds. But in some scenarios,like in cloud environment, we ask for higher time precision. kvm ptp clock, which chooses the host clock source as a reference clock to sync time between guest and host, has been adopted by x86 which takes the time sync order from milliseconds to nanoseconds. This patch enables kvm ptp clock for arm/arm64 and improves clock sync precision significantly. Test result comparisons between with kvm ptp clock and without it in arm/arm64 are as follows. This test derived from the result of command 'chronyc sources'. we should take more care of the last sample column which shows the offset between the local clock and the source at the last measurement. no kvm ptp in guest: MS Name/IP address Stratum Poll Reach LastRx Last sample ======================================================================== ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 13 +1040us[+1581us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 21 +1040us[+1581us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 29 +1040us[+1581us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 37 +1040us[+1581us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 45 +1040us[+1581us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 53 +1040us[+1581us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 61 +1040us[+1581us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 4 -130us[ +796us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 12 -130us[ +796us] +/- 21ms ^* dns1.synet.edu.cn 2 6 377 20 -130us[ +796us] +/- 21ms in host: MS Name/IP address Stratum Poll Reach LastRx Last sample ======================================================================== ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 72 -470us[ -603us] +/- 18ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 92 -470us[ -603us] +/- 18ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 112 -470us[ -603us] +/- 18ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 2 +872ns[-6808ns] +/- 17ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 22 +872ns[-6808ns] +/- 17ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 43 +872ns[-6808ns] +/- 17ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 63 +872ns[-6808ns] +/- 17ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 83 +872ns[-6808ns] +/- 17ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 103 +872ns[-6808ns] +/- 17ms ^* 120.25.115.20 2 7 377 123 +872ns[-6808ns] +/- 17ms The dns1.synet.edu.cn is the network reference clock for guest and 120.25.115.20 is the network reference clock for host. we can't get the clock error between guest and host directly, but a roughly estimated value will be in order of hundreds of us to ms. with kvm ptp in guest: chrony has been disabled in host to remove the disturb by network clock.

So we can see that the clock difference between host and guest is in order of ns.
